and she has gone off to school Smile I explained to her the bus was coming and she was going to school (using makaton aswell) and she kept signing bus and school and looking out the window waiting for it to come. Then when it came she was laughing and got on the bus with the escort (and all the other children) and she sat by the window waving to me and ds. Then she blew me a kiss. Awww my heart has just melted.

She is such a brave little thing! Grin makes all the other stuff worthwhile

What a soppy post, just wanted to share Smile

Have you not seen the film where his mum waves him off on the school bus when he is little, and then he does the same for his own son many years later?

Sorry fio, I didn't mean to sound mocking, that was a lovely poignant moment in the film, and I was just trying to make a little joke.

I do agree with ff, it was a gorgeous moment to share and a lovely happy memory to keep for years to come. First day at school is a milestone.

fio2 · 03/09/2004 08:53

I know you are noit mocking, dont worry Smile

Dd2 just started her first day at junior school today as well.

Dingle · 03/09/2004 09:50 have quite choked me up..yes, a soppy post, but a lovely one.
It's important to read all the advice, and to share all the bad, but it is much more heart warming to hear a post like this.

blossomhill · 03/09/2004 09:51

That is so sweet!!!!!

coppertop · 03/09/2004 09:54

All the staff have fell in love with her apprently Smile

She did really well. She understood everything that was asked her, she co-operated, she joined in with circle time, she communicated well, she ate all her school dinner and has 2 puddings (!!greedy piglet) and it was an apparently great day. She seems to have knicked the space of the front of the bus next to the escort Grin I think she must be the 'baby' on the bus!

She is a very happy bunny but looks really tired now!

I on the other hand cried twice before the bus came and worried that much I gave myself a migraine! Luckily ds agreed to have an afternoon with me Grin oh the joys of having one child at home
